This unit aims to build on the pedagogic content provided in EDGU2000 and provide students with a deeper exploration of the tenets of successful teaching of English to speakers of other languages. The unit is run in conjunction with the Centre for English Teaching and involves lectures by CET staff, lesson observations and practical teaching. The focus is on developing participants' ability to plan and program teaching in a range of macro-skills, and to develop intercultural skills and understandings.
